The SmallBall Nation of Anti-Goatsack is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Billy with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 27.897 billion Anti-Goatsackians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Keely. Income tax is unheard of.
The all-consuming Anti-Goatsackian economy, worth a remarkable 3,770 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Book Publishing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 135,162 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.
Many aides in Billy's office are known to be serial jaywalkers, AG-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, and the tenet of free speech is held dear. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Anti-Goatsack's national animal is the Beaner, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
